In the 90s, people went on and on about the paperless office. Well, I don’t know about you, but my office is far from paperless. Keeping client files, seven years of tax returns, current year receipts and the like — I’ve got a huge amount of paper.
A few years ago, I bought a personal paper shredder. And I’m glad I did. Although I don’t shred unnecessarily, I shred anything that could be connected to me, my business or my clients.
Oddly enough, I don’t see paper shredder on my official list of office gadgets I can’t live without. What was I thinking?!
